Best of November

I posted 58 times in November – the record low for me in years!

Blogging. What’s new? was the only original, creative, thoughtful post all month!

I went to the NASW meeting (you can watch my panel if you go here and scroll down to “Rebooting science journalism: Adapting to the new media landscape”).

I gave a talk – Sigma Xi pizza lunch lecture – Science in the current media environment.

His book just came out, so it was a good time for a little bloggy Q&A: Written In Stone: interview with Brian Switek.

And another science blogger published books – ZooBorns!

Another interview in the series: ScienceOnline2010 – interview with Marla Broadfoot

We opened ScienceOnline2011 for registration and had to close in 45 minutes as the confernce was full! A little later on we posted some updates and a Thanksgiving message. Then I started introducing this year’s participants.

The end of the month saw a frenzy as people used the very last moment to submmit their submissions for Open Laboratory 2010.

There is a cool new blog in town – Introducing: Science of Blogging.

Finally, I hosted Encephalon #82, the neuroscience blog carnival.

And over on the Scientific American Guest Blog, I summonned a bunch of great writers for an exciting month of blogging – check them all out:

  1. You’ve done a great job of attracting many of the best science bloggers out there Bora. well done!
    I feel humbled to belong to this group of amazing people. I know my post was far from the best of the bunch- but could you include the link on your list as well (never mind if there’s a specific reason for excluding it)?

  2. Fixed it. Figured out why I missed it – when you just scroll down the Guest Blog, it’s not there! I have to figure out why. Can’t wait to move to WP….

  3. That’s strange, because it did show up as ‘previous’ and ‘next’ on carin’s and James’ post. Ah well, maybe the profanity filter kicked in ;)! What is sciam running now, if I may ask?

  4. Something made in-house…not too bad, actually.
